The pair of points is on the graph of an inverse variation. Find the missing value.

(2.4, 3) and (5, y)

a. 1

b. 0.69

c. 6.25

d. 1.44

We plug the known x and y into the inverse variation equation y = k/x;

3 = k/2.4

Multiplying by 2.4 on both sides, we get k = 7.2

Now we plug that into the equation and put the new value of "x" in...

y = 7.2/5 = 1.44 (d)

Hope that helps!
